Pretend It’s Fall In Hawaii With A Trip To This Charming Pumpkin Patch
While mainland America experiences all things autumn, including apple orchards, haunted attractions, fall foliage, and chilly weather, those of us who call Hawaii home can get a little bummed when the only seasonal change is a drop in the ocean temperature or Starbucks cup print. Well, I have fantastic news for all of you who either miss seasons or wish you were able to experience them, ever: the island of Oahu is home to not one, but two pumpkin patches. The first is found at Waimanalo Country Farms, accompanied by their fall sunflower bloom, which we’ve talked about here. The second is found on the opposite side of the island, at Aloun Farms.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
While we may not get to experience autumn like the mainland, at least we can still visit a pumpkin patch! Aloun Farms is located at 91-1440 Farrington Hwy., Kapolei, HI 96707. For more information, visit their website or follow them on Facebook.
